Review by: V.H. Soror B
Ritual Magic of the Golden Dawn is a reprint with some additions to the book that one of the Founders of the Golden Dawn and others had written. Previously, this book was published under the name of Astral Projection, Ritual Magic, and Alchemy. The Flying Rolls comprised in this book were given out as additional lessons for those in the grade of Adeptus Minor.
The foundations of the Golden Dawn teachings are here along with some missing documents that have surfaced. For all of those who find the teachings and western system of the historic and true Golden Dawn to be their path, this is a great book. Ritual Magic not only deals with historical documents of the First Golden Dawn members but also contains knowledge applicable to the contemporary Golden Dawn teachings.
There is an extensive amount of information on all types of subjects. For example, Ritual Magic contains many Flying Rolls that concern astral projection. Remember, these techniques were given to high-grade members of the original Golden Dawn. These members attained an established base of knowledge and practical work prior to receiving these works.
I would not recommend this book to a beginning practitioner of the Golden Dawn system. I highly suggest this book to those who have been doing the "work" for a while. Add this book to your magical collection, and I promise you will never be sorry.
